Emily and Troy tied the knot under a big beautiful tree next to the lake at Hackersley Estate Winery followed by their reception at St Aidan’s Winery in the Ferguson Valley. The weather on the day was a bit iffy and we got thoroughly soaked setting up the ceremony – all part of the fun of being a stylist!
Luckily about an hour before the ceremony was due to start, the sun came out and after we quickly wiped the rain off all the chairs, it was good to go. A bit of a mission for Poppy + Co – Flower Design and Wedding Styling to get their beautiful floral garlands up the tree but with a bit of teamwork and help from my passable throwing skills and ladder, the end result was beautiful.
Simple bunches of baby’s breath tied to the sides of our Gladiator chairs with some burlap – from Poppy + Co – completed the decorations for the ceremony. For the ceremony we provided the signing table, white folding Gladiator chairs and parasols as well as some lawn games to keep the guests amused while they enjoyed some drinks and canapés overlooking the stunning rolling green hills and lake at Hackersley.
Emily had a very clear vision for her day for both the ceremony and reception and the credit for the “look” must go to her of course!
The reception was held at the nearby St. Aidan Wines, in their brand-new function room – this wedding was the first big sit down wedding they’ve done in there and it looked AMAZING!
Again, beautiful floral styling from Poppy + Co. Tables, chairs, linen, festoon lighting and bespoke furniture from us here at Ferguson Valley Events. Most of the set-up was done by the bridal party the day before the wedding and again the look for the day was thanks in large part to the vision of the bride.
The beautiful wedding favours were individual potted succulents done by the bride – looking great on a suitcase stack and one of our upcycled tables.
Can’t beat that bridal table backdrop! And they’re our festoon lights up above, don’t they look great!
We wish Em and Troy all the best for their future life together, and congratulations!
It was a long, cold and wet day for us and by the end of the day I was absolutely shattered but so pleased with how everything came together. There was a great moment right at the end of the day that made it all worthwhile – when I headed back to Hackersley around 7pm to pick up the lawn games and ceremony gear. Seeing the tree by the lake lit up at night with all the floral decorations still looking gorgeous was just magic.
